Arkansas’ new athletics director is not a fan of the massive buyouts that have dominated the college football headlines this offseason. In just his second day on the job, Hunter Yurachek told assembled media at his introductory press conference inside the Fowler Center that he hopes to be a leader when it comes to reducing or eliminating that guaranteed aspect of head coach contracts. “We’ve got to get a handle on coaches contracts and the buyouts,” Yurachek said. “To me, losing football games is being terminated with cause. The protection sometimes that coaches are provided within their contracts to me is ludicrous.” Former Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema is reportedly being paid $11.8 million not to coach the Razorbacks for the remainder of his contract, which was extended through the 2020 season a month after a victory in the 2014 Texas Bowl. – Andrew Hutchinson, 247sports.comRead More
